Charles A. Rohrmann, Jr., M.D., Endowment for Radiology Resident Educational Excellence

The Charles A. Rohrmann, Jr., M.D., Endowment for Radiology Resident Educational Excellence was created in 2010 to support the future of resident education in the Department of Radiology at UW Medicine.

With your strong support and investments in this endeavor, the Fund has benefited resident research, education, and outreach in ways that would not have been otherwise possible.

The endowment goal is $1 million and we are within reach, with approximately $300,000 to go! Reaching the goal will provide a regular income stream for the residency program of about $50,000 per year. At this level, distributions can fund valuable educational resources, infrastructure, opportunities, and provide meaningful awards to high-achieving residents for experiences that enhance their core training.

There is no other source to fund these strong enhancements to the Resident educational experience. Your donation will create a legacy and underscore your commitment to the enrichment of the University of Washington Radiology Residency program.


Congratulations Radiology Graduates!

UW Radiology Residents Serve in the Community

Despite Snowmageddon Seattle on February 9th, members of our radiology program embarked on the snowy trip to South Seattle to serve the people most affected by the challenging weather conditions, our homeless community! We worked together with members of the Seattle Union Gospel Mission at the Hope Place Shelter for Women and Children by preparing lunch for those hoping to escape the cold winter weather and have a warm meal. This is the second year our program has participated at this shelter and we hope to continue this tradition for many years to come.

The Seattle Union Gospel Mission has a long history of helping at-risk youth, refugees and the homeless in the Seattle area by providing housing, food, recovery programs and much more. Individuals or groups interested in volunteering at this shelter, or the men’s shelter located in Pioneer Square, should sign up on the Seattle Union Gospel Mission website.
